An EF3 tornado touched down in Wynne on March 31, 2023 leaving severe damage in its wake and hundreds of homes and businesses affected. Cross County has been declared a disaster area by the federal government.

The Community Foundation has established two funds for recovery for nonprofits serving the affected areas:
